Analysis of wood texture in appearance for plastic parts of automotive interiors

Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
The wood texture in appearance was evaluated using the paired comparison method for plastic parts of automotive interiors. Physical quantities of sample surfaces, such as the distribution of the color and the brightness, were measured. Correlation between the wood texture in appearance and the physical quantities was analyzed. As a result this wood texture in appearance was found to be characterized by the contrast of the grain pattern of the wood and the averaged brightness.
